    I'm of the younger gender here(57). When aarp sends me their 'stuff'? in the mail, I put a gun related article in the return envelope. Every time.
    Thats what I do with all my junk mail return envelopes. I find good articles that interest me and send it back to em. I don't know if the one who opens them up can read English or not or they just get thrown in the garbage. It's still worth a try and it's their dime.

    Turned 60 in August and own twice as many revolvers as I do auto's. For a CCW it's an SP101 in 357 mag or if lightly dressed a NAA 22 Mag and for a house gun a Ruger P94 in 40 S&W. My 1911 is an Auto Ordinance that I put as much into a smiths job as it cost me new. It is reliable but cocked and locked still bothers me. Maybe I'm getting old.

    Oops. I just noticed after clicking on the numbers that I chose the wrong choice. I'm supposed to be in the 21-29 group.

    I am 33 and prefer revolvers. Right now, my favorite is a Ruger Redhawk in .44 Mag.

    I'm 52 with a mine of a 21 year old and a body of a 72 year old. I even have the machineguns when I'm walking. I have to load up with texmex first.

    As I'm constantly reminded - 40 is less that 2yrs away.

    Own both, prefer my auto.

    hot

    wow: I voted when "Bob' started this. Didn't bother to add anything.
    With the body of a 100yr old thats been run over by a freight train, mind of a 5yr old on 'ridlin' enjoying 56.
    Now 'Bob' sir; of course my shooting falls equally into both categories.
    I get the 'hots' this week and flipflop

    i'd like to get a wheelgun or 3, but seems most of them around here run about the same price as higher-end 1911's, and right now i'm not financially able to drop $600+ on a 6 shooter when i can more easily drop $400-500 on a spankin new XD-9 or lightly used Glock

    I'm 39 but this July I'll turn 39 again. My carry gun is a S&W 357 Combat Magnum 2". I have to say though it's not a real joy to shoot, but is small and slim. You know dynamite in a small package. My under the pillow gun is a SA TRP 1911 Operator with a light on it. It's a little heavy for CCW and I have a problem putting a $1600 gun in a holster.

    I'm 39 for a few more months. Own more Revolvers than Autos (8-2) but they are all sa or antiques. Why must we choose? Us gun nuts should stick together. Trying to choose between the XD9-sc and the S&W Thunder Ranch Tactical (4" shrouded barrel w/ rail, full moon clips, and same ammo as my Officers).
    But like Olsen said, prbably have to wait a bit on price ($400 vs $1200)

    Talking

    Im 32 and own a Ruger GP100 which I shoot in IDPA matches (one of only three revolver shooters there). I also have a S&W 617 which I like and I CCW a S&W model 60.

    I catch alot of grief from people but I can shoot pretty well.

    Why do they need 15 round?

    I'm not a revolver guy, but we were just at the shop the other day and they have a used S&W model 60. I must say, that thing felt great! If I had the money I would have left with that stainless beauty.

    Most of my training has been done using simiauto guns. I would carry a wheel gun as a back up, but my department forbids it by policy. I am 28 years old.

    May I ask why they have a policy that forbids carrying a revolver as a backup?

    I don't know. A lot of us disagree with it. Our department is just now getting tasers so we are rewriting the use of force police. We are trying to get that amended in the process.
